Cycle day 41. No period?

Hi there. DH and I used to use NFP but have slacked since the planned pregnancy and birth of our second son. (Didn't get pregnant for months and months and when we tried...first month...testament to charting!)

I have always had early but regular cycles. Always. I'm not on the pill or any form of BC. DH usually withdraws unless we feel like it's getting really close to AF. Not a good form of BC I know. LOL! My cycles are always around 25-26 days long. The longest in the past year past that was ONCE and it was 30 days long and we'd been travelling.

Well, I'm now on day 41!!! I have taken a handful of tests...last one being on Friday. They have all been negative. I always had early positives with my other two. I haven't been charting so I have no idea when I O'ed. We did have unprotected sex a handful of times a few weeks ago when we thought AF was around the corner. Oops. LOL!

I was stressed out this month, but I've been stressed before and it has never EVER caused me to be late....not this late for sure. I've also been bruising easily which is odd. Could I still be pregnant, but I just O'ed really late? I can't believe I haven't started yet. I have no idea what is going on. I really wish I had a chart to share. Any thoughts or personal experiences? Thanks!

Hmmm, well, without a chart, it's hard to say what's going on.

Thanks for your response! I was showing signs of AF at the appropriate time. Ever since then (and during that time) I had had cramping on and off...not the mind numbing craps I get WITH my period. I was taking Midol what feels like years ago now because I was starting to get quite crampy and very bitchy and tired. Every few days it feels like AF is going to start at any moment...but nothing. I've been tired and emotional lately...but that could mean anything. LOL! I took a test last night (dollar store) and it seemed negative. I looked for giggles this morning and saw the faintest line in the world, but I'd imagine that was the evaporation line.
The strange this is with Magnus, I had a positive 6 days BEFORE AF was due! I go to the doctor this afternoon. How soon do blood tests show up as either pos or neg? Thanks!

Hi...wow, we are in the same boat! I am on cd 41 and no period either! Getting worried as my periods are pretty regular although I didnt start really charting or paying close attention until Last month! I have taken 2 HPT and both negative but I have had the same signs and symptoms as you! I am scared that now that I am ready to try for another child that I may have waited too late!
